• New start/stop technology shuts down the 2.5L engine to save fuel when the Malibu stops momentarily, such as stoplights, contributing to an estimated five-percent increase in city fuel economy. An auxiliary battery powers electric accessories such as the climate system, power windows and radio during engine restarts.
  • Chassis and suspension updates contribute to the 2014 Malibu�s more refined driving experience, including rebound springs that are internal to the struts. They enable more refined calibration of the dampers for a smoother overall ride, while also improving body roll control and weight transfer during acceleration or turning.
  • The 2014 Malibu�s front fascia features a new, more prominent lower grille and the hood extends down and over the leading edge of a narrower upper grille. The grille openings are wider and accented with chrome.
  • The 2014 Malibu�s revised front-end appearance is influenced by the all-new Impala, creating a more cohesive look across Chevrolet�s sedan lineup.
  • The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu�s redesigned center console provides storage room for two cell phones and a pair of cup holders.

    After a single model year on the market, Chevrolet gave its midsize Malibu a big makeover for 2014, but the changes aren't all about styling. Although the refreshed sedan isn't on sale yet, Chevy has released some important numbers for its new 'Bu: namely its EPA fuel economy figures and MSRP.

    The Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix – an event that first returned to the Motor City last year, to somewhat embarrassing results – kicks off today, with the big race events happening Saturday and Sunday. But before any of Chevy's Bowtie-badged race cars hit the track, we were able to get our first in-person look at the refreshed 2014 Malibu – a vehicle getting a host of upgrades after just one model year.

    The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, having stared at the Impala across the showroom floor for a year, gets nips and tucks all over inspired by its larger brother. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the base car will get a stop-start system and 23 city miles per gallon, 35 highway, each number representing a one-mpg improvement over the 2013 car. Output is 196 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque.
